my heart is in Manchester, TN

This is the first time since I have lived in Nashville that I am not letting my inner hippie loose down at Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN. Bonnaroo was my first music festival, and while it is quite a struggle to camp out for 4 days, stand in an open field in 100+ temps, and figure out what to do with 5 day old hair... the music and the people and dancing with my friends until 4am  make it SOOO worth it!
To everyone who is down on the farm in Manchester right now... live it up! I will just be listening to The Shins, the Chili Peppers, and The Beach Boys in my ear buds at work, dreaming I am at the What Stage right there with you!
This summer has already provided opportunities so far to soak up the beautiful weather and chill with friends al fresco, and I can't wait for what the rest of summer holds! 
These are pictures from last Saturday's Tour de Fat in Centennial Park
Maybe if the boyfriend would smile for my pictures, I wouldn't have to post these awkward ones... hehe
What!? Your city doesn't have its own Parthenon!? Shame
It was a wonderful day of bikes, beers, and my babes (aka friends... had to keep up the alliteration!)
Just starting the dog days of summer
After a day in the park, I threw on my trusty chambray shirt and continued to rock out in my jersey skirt... I might just be living and sleeping in it at this point!

Here is my favorite song from a local band that I love, Moon Taxi (currently playing at the 'Roo)
I think you will like it too!

  12. Molly, thank you dear! Bonnaroo truly is it's own thing... you have to be down for camping, not showering, and rubbing elbows with strange hippies... unless you want to shell out the big bucks for VIP tickets... but I still love it, and think it is totally worth it for all the amazing music and people watching!
